Quotei picked up about 10 "broken" snes rgb cables cheap last week that actually were gc rgb cables in a box that claimed to contain snes rgb cables.if you want to modify your cable,you may want to connect all r,g,b,audio,sync and blanking signal grounds togetheror it wont work on some TVs.
QuoteYou seem a bit confused about the advantages of RGB over S-Video. Is it better? Yes. Is it worth it? That's up to you.The capacitors are indeed the problem, and by bypassing them you will make the cable work on your PAL SNES (but not a SNESjr). They're the little cylindrical bits inside the SCART connector, cut them out and connect the two wires together. I'm wondering though why you don't just buy a SNES RGB cable - hacking the caps off the GC one will render it incompatible with your GC. The PAL N64 does not do RGB. There is apparently an mod by a german company for $70, but no one cares enough to pay for it, it seems.As for the Q, the cable they sell gives you RGB. Whether it's worth it for you is entirely up to you.
Quotethis could be right because in France TV emissions are retransmitted in secam but everybody here says "Pal" because all TV here can read PAL and SECAM signals so my N64 could send a pal or secam signal , really i don't know!! but i play with Pal games for sure > i look at one of my cartridges :NUS-006(EUR).An other very good thing for me now with RGB : Most of Pal games are in 50htz with black border and with my doctor V64 i can play NTSC games in 60HTz in full screen but with the original video output , the colors flicker , not now in RGB !! >.. so i guess if you want to play pal games in rgb people should track down a Secam system?If other PAL tv in the world can read secam too like in France ..yes it could be a good idea
QuoteI recently purchased a Nintendo 64 from a pawn shop here in Australia (PAL ). It's one of the 'special' 64s with the official transparent orange chassis. The model number is NUS-001(EUR), also on the sticker on the underside is NUS-AUS-1. The copyright year on the main pcb is 2000, and the designation on the video chip (U1 on the pcb) is MAV-NUS RS5C382 9MS 72. It would appear that this is a very late model 64, but I will try to perform the RGB mod and I will report back with my findings. Wish me luck.

Are you serious?Really?Try taking a look at the edges of something red against a contrasting background like black. See how it's all wibbly and shimmery? Now look at it again in RGB mode.You're not likely to ever go back to composite/RF.

QuoteHaha, sorry I must really be blind..However I just cut those capasitors, and wham! Crisp picture, finally. No need for 33 Ohm caps. Ok, only DC left now.
QuoteI found a shop that claims to have PAL snes RGB leads. I have ordered a sample, and I will keep you posted. If it truly are snes RGB leads I will post pictures of the inners and paste the shop's details here so you all can enjoy the crisp snes RGB signals from a pal console too.
